Driving Within Gore or Median

Georgia Code Section 40-6-50 governs the law regarding driving within the gore or median. A Gore or Median is basically a dividing space on the road where you are not supposed to drive your car.  For example, entrance ramps on highways have an area that gradually connects the ramp to the highway so that drivers can safely merge onto the highway. The same goes for exit ramps – there is typically an exit lane that gradually veers to the side away from the highway, leaving a larger space in between the lanes. The purpose of these areas is to ensure driver safety and allow for emergency stops, etc.  You will often see them painted a different color (yellow or white) or have certain designs (like stripes) and created in a triangular shape. You are not supposed to drive on these areas and most people do not want to.

However, suppose you are on the highway and you need to exit, and for some reason you are not in the exit lane. If you are at risk of missing your exit, you may be tempted to make a quick maneuver through the Gore to get to your exit. That kind of driving can definitely get you a ticket for Driving with Gore or Median. As a general rule, avoid driving your car through any sort of area that serves a barrier or gap between exit and entrance lanes.

  1. A misdemeanor criminal offense on your record;
  2. 3 points on your driving record;
  3. A maximum fine of $1,000; Your fine will vary depending on the jurisdiction, your driving record and the facts of your case.
  4. Increased insurance premiums for several years; and
  5. A license suspension if you are over the point threshold
